Our National Anthem - O Canada!

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

History of O Canada

See Canadian Heritage

Canada, occupying 41 % of the continent is the world's second largest country after Russia.   The country has 9,970,610 square km (3,849,650 square miles), and is comprised of 92.4% of land, the rest being fresh water. Canada is also known for having the longest coastline in the world at about 244,000 km (151,600 miles). 
There are 10 provinces and 3 territories.  Some Canadian symbols include the maple leaf and the beaver.  Canada use to belong to Great Britain.  The name Canada dates back to the year 1535.  It was used by two Amerindians who were travelling with Jacqes Cartier to describe Stadacona - which is now known as Quebec City.  The word “Canada” comes from the aboriginal word “Kanata” which means village. Two of the main languages in Canada are English and French.

There are so many great people and things in Canada today and in history, that there is no way that I can possibly get it all in this small web page. Please send me an email or comment if you think something should be added or if I have made a mistake. Also, most of the information on this page has been taken from many other wonderful places and I have tried to make sure that there are links to all of these sources. Most pictures have a link.  Please let me know if I have used something or infringed on you in any way and I will remove it or fix it.
